All the talk at Bayern’s camp is how they are going to start off strong and win this game. Gladbach’s Swiss coach Lucien Favre is looking for the upset though:“Bayern are a top team and favourites to win the league. We’ll need cool heads and lots of patience, but we’re not scared.” The home team has not won this duel at their own stadiu for more than seven years, but they would be satisfied with a draw, against an opponent that in reality does have more quality. Captain Filip Daems confired: “We definitely want a point here at home,”
Bayern will be without one of their most dangerous men Frank Ribery, who is serving a suspension. His absence is always a blow, because of how important and good he is. Good news is that Robben is finally back, and in combination with Gomez and Muller up front, Bayern are always looking dangerous. It’s really intersting that the last four matches between these two sides here at Gladbach have ended in draws including last year’s spectacular 3-3. So it’s hard to see this one ending in a fifth straight draw. Going for the ultimate surprise with a win on Borrusia M’gladbach has loads of value at 5.00.
